    This might be the best Italian restaurant I’ve ever been too. Everything was delicious and the menu is varied with a lot of traditional Italian dishes that you don’t always find at other restaurants. The service was also excellent. If I have any criticism- and it’s extremely mild- is that it was a little darker than I’d like in the bar area.

    Our server, whose name I have forgotten, was fantastic. She gave us wonderful suggestions for drinks and food. She helped us figure out which food options were gluten free. We had the oysters rockafeller, the eastern cioppino and the brasstown beef short rib. Everything was so perfect and delicious. We will come back to try their other options and to try the seafood tower.

    First time diners. Crab Spaghetti Neri with squid ink pasta and Tortelloni Mignon entrees were exceptional. Only negative is they were smaller size portions. Servers and all staff extremely friendly and attentive. Pricey wine list, but we found a red blend that was unique and delicious and did not break the bank. Quiet for dining, although we ate early so the restaurant was not full. Will definitely return.

Discover Coastal North Carolina

The coastal region of North Carolina is a vacation magnet, and food is big business all along the shoreline. Fresh seafood establishments abound in this area, with many of them catering directly to the visitors as much as the locals. Steakhouses are also very common along the coast for those looking for a great cut prepared just right. The South is barbeque country, and you can add the North Carolina coast to the list, as barbecue smokehouses are plentiful and usually found in a bar-and-grill setting. International food is also a very popular choice along the North Carolina coast. Selections include Thai, German, Indian, and even Peruvian cuisine. Of course, there are many national chain establishments as well as locally owned family restaurants and combination eateries for those wanting something quick.
